I am currently a doctoral researcher conducting an interdisciplinary sustainability research-based project, spanning disciplines Engineering, Politics and Psychology at the University of Sheffield. My research seeks to offer a political perspective to the technologies, namely; Carbon Dioxide Utilization (CDU) and Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) by focusing on gaining an understanding of UK government agenda-setting processes for the two technologies.

Prior to this, I completed my undergraduate studies in BSc. Environmental Science with a First Class Honours at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi, Ghana in 2013. Following this, I trained as a Health, Safety and Environmental professional with Technip Ghana, a French owned international company with specialities of Engineering, Procurement and Construction for the Oil & Gas industry. My work involved Health, Safety, Security and Environmental (HSSE) planning and management of oil & gas projects onshore and offshore.

In 2015, I took on an MSc. (ENG) Environmental and Energy Engineering program at the University of Sheffield, a program which provided relevant exposition on knowledge of diverse engineering tools for dealing with environmental and energy problems, attaining a distinction grade overall. My research focused on investigating the performance evaluation of amines, specifically, Dimethylethanolamine (DMEA) and Monoethanolamine (MEA) for carbon dioxide capture using a spiral rotating device. This was where my interest in Carbon Dioxide Capture and Utilization was aroused, and subsequently laid a solid foundation for my current PhD research.
